It seems only fitting that our good friend Christopher M. sent us some photos from the set of Whip It, the upcoming roller derby film directed by Drew Barrymore, as we were the site that broke the news of Ellen Page’s involvement back in January. At the time, “Derby Girl” writer Shauna Cross, whose book is the source material for the film, hinted at Page taking the lead roll of Bliss Cavender, an indie-rock loving misfit who finds her place as part of the Texas women’s roller derby.

Now, with the rest of the cast set — one that includes Kristen Wiig, Zoe Bell, Juliet Lewis, Marcia Gay Harden and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat — the film has just finished lensing in Michigan. The following photos were taken on set, and while they aren’t giving us a lot of insight as to what we can expect from Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, they do show off some funky roller derby costumes.

Whip It does not yet have a release date, but should be in theaters sometime in 2009.
